RARE EURO-SPY ENTRY BUT WELL WORTH WATCHING
I have this very poor quality Spanish language version at 1:43. Unfortunately the color is very red and fuzzy. I looked on Y/T and there isn't any sign of it. I guess it has faded from cinema history.
German Cobos plays agent C-55 (or Z-55), who is sent to Hong Kong to replace a fallen comrade and complete his mission. As soon as he arrives at the airport he is chased by the police. First in the streets in a wild car chase and soon on a speed boat around the Hong Kong Harbor. When he finally escapes, a good 20 mins. has passed. The rest of the movie has all the leads just stand around and threaten each other. Liontine May is totally wasted, lost in a crowd.
The action picks up near the end when Z-55 fights with Giovanni Gianfiglia (Ken Wood), who ends up crushed in a large machine. C-55 escapes by setting a fire which ignites all the Fireworks stored there.
Watch it if you like Euro-Spy movies. If not, don't bother, as you aren't missing much.
